Enjoolata Training Centre – Sustainability report May 2018
Enjoolata is a Maasai word used to describe a feeling of AWE! A feeling of joy when you come around a bend and experience, physically or mentally, something great and unexpected. That is Enjoolata!
The Enjoolata Awareness and Training Centre will be a culturally themed vision & inspiration centre with education and entertainment, showcasing, protecting and enhancing the Maasai culture and the natural environment and its wildlife.
The centre will act as a source of information for research and further studies of some of the threatened species. The centre will also provide information and research on materials on culture, birds, plants and wildlife.
The centre may have specific content pillars such as:
- Global ecosystems under threat – the solutions at work in Masai Mara Private Conservancies such as Mara Naboisho Conservancy.
- The need and ways to mobilize and incentivize local communities and other partners including guests.
- The role of Responsible Tourism to protect our nature & wildlife, with BCEK and other examples forming case studies
